  • Perfect home for a Manuel Antonio vacation

    "My family of four stayed at Brooks Hacienda for six nights during our two weeks in Costa Rica. We were greeted by Howler monkeys upon arrival and Capuchins the following morning - what a special treat! The home is beautiful, comfortable, and clean. Kate and Randy have stocked the home with anything you might need for cooking a meal (if you aren't enjoying the many wonderful restaurants in MA), plus plenty of bath towels and pool towels. Fans throughout the house help to keep it cool inside and the lovely patio gets a nice breeze during the morning and later afternoon. We loved the pool! It is solar heated and the perfect temperature, not cold at all, but not too warm either - just right. Swimming in the morning or later afternoon/evening is wonderful because the sun is not bearing down on you at those times of the day. The view is beautiful! We saw plenty of birds, including toucans in a nearby tree. I found it to be very peaceful, especially in the morning sipping my coffee listening to the birds. Kate and Randy were living downstairs while we visited, always available if needed, but giving us our privacy as well. Such a nice couple and was a pleasure to meet them! If we are fortunate to vacation again in Manuel Antonio we wouldn't hesitate to book Brooks Hacienda again - it was a perfect home base for our family!"

  • Amazing villa with the most amazing staff!

    "The villa was more than what our family was expecting. See it online is one thing, but when you walk into the villa it is the best experience. The views are unbelievable, the house is so welcoming and there are no words to express how great Was to our family! Jose is the most amazing cook, Randall makes sure all you needs are meet and Ana is the best housekeeper. Randall set up great activities for us. We went zip lining, parasailing, snorkeling, tour of the national park and swimming in a waterfall. I would highly recommend the villa and can't wait to return!"

  • Stay here - we loved this house and location!

    "We had an excellent time staying at Casa Marlin! It is beautifully finished (looks even better than in the pictures) and has four bedrooms (two with kings, two with queens) with patios all facing the ocean, two bedrooms on each floor, and a top patio with views of the ocean and mountains. Every morning we enjoyed coffee and watched the beautiful nature around the house, including a troop of capuchin monkeys that would come and play in the pool every day. We had a rental car and it was an ideal location between Manuel Antonio beach/park and downtown Quepos, about a 5min drive to beach. Kimberly was an excellent property manager, she is super friendly and if we had any issues or questions we could just text/call her and she would always respond immediately and take care of it. For example, we noticed a lot of ants in the house the first night we made dinner and she got an exterminator to come the next day while we were away, and we had no more ant issues for the remainder of the trip. There is also a maid who comes daily (or less if you prefer), so you can always come back from daytime adventures to a clean house. Stay here - Casa Marlin was truly the highlight of our trip."

    "One word......MEFI. Mefi is the gentleman who greeted us on arrival and explained everything about the house, what to expect, how to get around, and answered every text, every phone call immediately. He helped us solve every problem. Had it not been for Mefi, our vacation would have never been such a success. My kids, husband and I are truly adored Mefi! The house is beyond every expectation, having Sabrina's help planning/scheduling our events was better than any travel agent we've ever worked with before, the maid kept the house super clean, the maintenance gentleman immediately helped us with a clogged sink and when I forgot the keys to get inside. The country was beautiful, but we were in dry season so we didn't see much wildlife, sadly. Javier was our chef who was excellent and super sweet. We met the most amazing people throughout our visit. We recommend Mitch and Carlos for jet ski's with snorkeling. Melanie and her husband were so caring and great with parasailing (many spoke highly of them and how their company was the best to use!) Louis drove us on the vacation buggy trip. I recommend him highly! Olman was a taxi driver we also recommend!! One very important thing, I would NOT recommend you rent a car unless you've driven here before. I believe it's better and probably safer to leave the driving to the locals. The roads are smaller than in the states, and super steep hills and a lot of people, bikes, and motorcycles as well. In all, I would recommend this home! It made for a stress free vacation that was safe and well planned. And from the bottom of hearts, thank you Mefi!"
